Nintendo released the finalized launch-day lineup for the 3DS today. In their statement, Nintendo confirmed that most 3DS will cost 40 dollars (US). There will be 16 launch-day games (18 if you include AR Games and Face Raiders, which come installed on the console.) when the 3DS hits shelves on March 27th. There are 3 first-party games; Nintendogs + Cats, Pilotwings Resort, and my personal favorite, Steel Diver. Highlights of t third-party offering include Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, Ridge Racer 3D and Madden Football 3D.

At their launch event in New York, Nintendo promised that more than 30 games would be available during the consoles “launch window”, which ends on June 7th, the first day of this year’s E3. Unfortunately for Nintendo fans, many of the 3DS’ more anticipated offerings, including Kid Icarus: Uprising, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D won’t be out by then. Nintendo claims that all of them, plus a 3DS version of Mario Kart, will be available by the end of the year.
